French troops of 1721

 Jacques-Antoine Delaistre (1690-1765)

 A great series of pictures of the French forces. I have put some of them on this Pinterest page.

Really nice (and different pic)! Thanks for sharing it.
Interesting how the French added a T to ‘hussar’. I’ve also seen them use a D in other documents of the period. Wonder if they had silent letters in those days and just assumed there should be a T or D there?

Just been poring over them all on the Pinterest page you have put up, top notch, so many great pictures there and loads of inspiration and interest to take from them.
